The ultimate goal of the students' Aportfolio is to intentionally document learning and to design a positive digital presence for a professional audience. Appalachian State students and faculty use Aportfolios for multiple purposes in the context of a class, program, major, research project, international experience or career search.
Aportfolios can be used as a method of integration and meaning making as students document and reflect on their experiences and process as a learner over time and across multiple courses. Aportfolios support self-directed learning, information literacy, and creative aesthetics in web design. The process of designing and creating an ePortfolio assists students in articulating transferable skills, knowledge, and co-curricular learning. Aportfolios provide a place where students organize, represent, and contextualize their academic growth and the intersections with their professional aspirations.
